The World Boxing Council ordered a surprising title eliminator fight between Dominick Breazeale and Eric Molina, both ranked outside the top five. Breazeale claimed the mandatory challenger spot on Saturday by stopping Molina.
The decision by the WBC to shove Whyte aside gained negativity and Wilder now has to face Breazeale next according to WBC rules. Should Wilder want to fight Whyte or Joshua instead of Breazeale, he would need to get a reprieve from the WBC.
Due to Breazeale’s victory, Hearn might have given up on making the fight between Whyte and Wilder happen.
I'm not focused on Whyte -yeah I'd like to make the fight -Wilder is fighting Breazeale next but I'm sure they will make you think otherwise
